That’s some serious wager between those two.
Let’s look at the tale of the tape here, shall we?
Seth Curry will be participating in the 3-point contest for the first time in his career, while this is going to be Steph’s fourth time to join the said event. The older Curry has already won the 3-point shootout title back in 2015.
In terms of shooting percentage, Seth takes the upper hand, as he’s shooting 46.5 percent from beyond the arc this season as opposed to Stephen Curry who is only at 44.4 percent. However, the former is only averaging 2.8 3-point attempts, while the latter is jacking up at least 12 per game.
Lastly, Steph is already considered as the greatest shooter in the history of the NBA, while Seth is still trying to make a name for himself despite being in his sixth season in the league.
So from the looks of it, all signs point to Seth losing the bet against his brother.
The All-Star festivities are being held in Charlotte, hometown of the Curry brothers.
The other participants in the 3-point contest are Sacramento Kings’ Buddy Hield, Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker, Blazers’ Damian Lillard, Milwaukee Bucks’ Khris Middleton, Brooklyn Nets’ Joe Harris, Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki, Toronto Raptors’ Danny Green and Kemba Walker, who’s playing for the hometown team Charlotte Hornets.
